Notes for parents and carers The single most important thing that helps children succeed as learners is an ability to communicate. This book supports the development of a rich vocabulary as children talk about the pictures, and the adventures and everyday lives of the different characters. Children will also develop their ability to concentrate as they search the scenes, spotting entertaining happenings, familiar situations, and tiny details. Every page is perfect for sharing or for children to look at on their own. They will enjoy finding more things the closer they look!

To get the most out of this book:

Search the scenes for the items at the top of each page and read the prompts at the bottom to encourage observation and conversation.

• Follow the characters through the day. Describe what they do and tell their stories. • Play I-spy: find things to count, an item that’s a certain colour or shape, something with a pattern, or an object beginning with a particular letter sound.

• Encourage the use of positional language: behind, next to, on, under, etc. • Look for fun events happening on the page. Discuss what the characters might be saying or feeling, and what might happen next.

• Make links to children’s own experiences. For instance, you could ask, “What did we do at the park today?” Penny Coltman Educational Consultant
